Inside information, profit warning: Lamor lowers its guidance for adjusted EBIT for 2022

Lamor Corporation Plc lowers its adjusted EBIT guidance for 2022. Lamor now estimates the adjusted EBIT to be in the range of EUR 11-13 million for the full year 2022. The uncertainty related to the progress in large projects, which is typical for Lamor’s business model, affects predictability. Earlier the adjusted EBIT was estimated to be at least EUR 14 million for the full year 2022. Lamor maintains its guidance relating to revenue.

Lowering the guidance of adjusted EBIT is mainly due to the weakening of the US dollar and dollar-linked currencies which are impacting the result negatively through currency fluctuations of receivables, as well as the lower-than-expected result of the Chinese associated company, caused by covid related restrictions.

Lamor will publish its financial statements release on 28 February 2023.

Revised guidance for 2022

Lamor estimates its revenue to be at least 120 million for the full year 2022. Adjusted EBIT is estimated to be in the range of 11-13 million.

Lamor has a strong order backlog for 2022. Since a significant part of the revenue is generated by large service project deliveries, any major, unpredictable delay in the project progress would have a negative impact on revenue and profit for 2022.

Lamor closely follows how the Russian invasion of Ukraine is affecting the company’s operating environment. Due to the war, Lamor has ceased the sales activities of the products and services in Russia. War-related global cost inflation as well as the shortage of raw materials and components are having an effect also on Lamor’s business. Lamor will continue to monitor the situation carefully.

The previous guidance for 2022, issued on 20 May 2022, was as follows:

Lamor estimates its revenue to be at least 120 million for the full year 2022. Adjusted EBIT is estimated to be at least EUR 14 million.
